This was a piece we did for ASHE to submit to the APIC film festival at the beginning of 2011. We interviewed some very prominent people in the world of Infection Prevention within hospitals. The goal was to highlight a very important profession that often goes unnoticed.
The process for this piece was accelerated more than a usual project. We found out about the film festival with little more than 30 days to complete the piece. We knew that we wanted to interview Judene Bartley, a revolutionary in the Infection Prevention field, which meant getting to Detroit, Michigan with a fair bit of gear. We were also able to coordinate interviews with two of Judene's colleagues, Russ Olmsted and Linda Dickey, both of which play major roles in the field.
So, after a day of interviews in Detroit we came back to Bloomington and needed to get some good Hospital B-roll. Fortunately, the good people at Bloomington Hospital in Orange County let us invade a wing of their hospital for a few hours to get what we needed. Once we had our B-roll Luke Tate had his turn to piece it all together.
This was a fun project to work on with such a tight deadline. The film was screened in front of a few thousand people at the APIC Annual conference in Boston.
